Default Mutually exclusive checkboxes

How do you make checkboxes in a WORD form mutually exclusive? I do NOT work
in code. Can this be done using the standard "Developer" functions provided
in Word.
I am creating a form with several lines of questions. Each is to be answered
using Yes/No/NA checkboxes. Only a single box should be checked.

Default Mutually exclusive checkboxes

I'm not aware of a way of doing that without programming. However, if you
aren't 100% committed to check boxes, you might consider using a Drop-Down
Form Field in which the choices are Yes, No, and Not Applicable.

What you are describing is actually the functionality of radio buttons.
Can't you use those instead of checkboxes? It would also be more
userfriendly as people would find it 'normal' to only be able to select one
radio button.
